Penn St. to get collection from feminist Chicago

AP – “Penn State’s library will be home to an art-education collection donated by noted feminist artist, author and educator Judy Chicago. Penn State archivist Jackie Esposito said it will include instructions and pieces to create Chicago’s best known work, “The Dinner Party,” along with examples of past Dinner Party exhibits. The piece has 39 place settings around a triangular table, with each setting representing a woman of historical note, from ancient goddesses to artist Georgia O’Keeffe.” The university on Tuesday called the donation one of the most important private collections in feminist art education.
